Unformatted text preview: resistor of adjustable resistance. It was hooked up to a voltage sensor so that a computer could graph the potential across the capacitor vs. time. We determined that with higher resistances it took the capacitor longer to discharge. The next step was to determine the capacitance of the capacitor we were using. We calculated it to be 6 .01092 7.6 10 F-....
